Why Mentor?

Because we believe that people grow better together. Our mentors are the backbone of EDGE, providing the support and guidance that young leaders need to fuel their personal, professional, and spiritual growth. EDGE is a community made up of mentors across the country with a wide variety of backgrounds, careers, and areas of expertise, but all with one shared passion: sharing their experiences to build up the next generation of leaders.
